 Why we ignore Nigerian People, award contracts to Chinese – Amaechi - Railway projects ROTIMI-AMAECHI



The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Ameachi, has disclosed why local contractors cannot handle big rail construction projects in the country.

Amaechi said local contractors lack the capacity to handle big rail construction projects they want.

He spoke in Lagos State while responding to agitation from local contractors on why they have been sidelined in the award of rail contracts.

Amaechi said local contractors needs to acquire the requisite experience before they could handle rail projects in Nigeria.

He said: "A contractor must have at least five years experience and genuine evidence of work done to be awarded a contract.

"We are not using our local contractors because they are not qualified. If you want to participate, build capacity. We can't give you a life-threatening contract if we don't trust your capacity
